  1. There’s probably 1 or 2 off the coast at any given time, especially now when Russian naval activity is at a high point. They aren’t doing anything to malicious, just reconnaissance, watching ship movements, probing defences, gathering sonar data on newer subs, ect. The key thing they’re after is the training experience for their crews on being able to stay undetected for as long as possible.

    We see this behaviour in other countries as well, such as the UK, Norway, and Sweden. Operations like this is a very good way to get experience for your crews. It’s a great intel resourxe. Even if you get detected (not an issue unless you get caught doing something bad or inside the 12 mile boundary), it’s a good way to grasp the capabilities of sensors and operators, detection networks, and how contacts may be prosecuted.
